It’s ok like some of the people said it’s more of a walk than hike. I walked more like speed walked cuz it was raining sideways and 20 mph rain made it un-enjoyable. I was soaked by the time I got back to my car.

Didn’t make it up all the way, just to the first rope. Pretty good considering we did it on December 20th. It got too icy but could see how it would be an amazing view at the top! Will have to attempt again in the spring/summer.

Beautiful hike, but be careful if snowy- the trail can be very slippery since it’s so steep.

If you like waterfalls - this isn’t to be missed.

Very easy. Expected more. Better hiking in Iceland than this one.

Short hike to waterfall. Really pretty. Very crowded with tourists

Beautiful waterfall. Slippery walking. Three women slipped just walking to get to the waterfall. Wear decent shoes.

In my opinion this is one of the most beautiful falls in Iceland of the ones I saw. The hike has a incline on the way there and a decline on the way back. Recommend!

Three sketchy rope sections near the top but worth it.

Facile. Terrain plat. Nous sommes allez pour le couché de soleil. Retour à la noirceur donc peu de touristes. Sentier bien délimité.

Beaucoup de monde

Magnifique.

Tourist overlook of a big waterfall and gorgeous canyon. Short walk, lots of crowds, long drive, but free.

Easy to get to and beautiful waterfall.

Recommend doing the loop with Austerbrekkur on the way up to see the glacier, then to the waterfall. Or if you need and easier hike do the A. Trail on the way down. But it’s a great view on the whole way up to look at the glacier!

The views are key here, you get a glimpse of 360 around you, the town, the ocean, the waterfalls of course across the road! Much worth it.

Busy but you can't help but be impressed. Don't just stick to the bottom: climb the steps to the top and continue going up the path to see more falls and terrific views. There were about 100 people at the bottom and along the top path we came across maybe a dozen people.

The walk is a little bit boring. The black sand beach is beautiful. The plane is nothing extraordinary.

Interesting wreck but sadly people are not respectful - clambering all over it, graffiti etc. It dims what should be an interesting object to view and photograph. As ever a minority ruin it for the majority. It is a heavily walked route so expect crowds

Beautiful falls and easy walk

Not for everyone but worth doing if you have the time. This is a walk more than a hike. It's a relatively straight and flat march across the beach to the plane crash. Don't expect any more views than what you see from the car park. Do expect lots of people clambering over the wreck, stealing parts and a lot of graffiti, which is a great shame as this is such a unique site.

Criminally overlooked! This is an easy hike on a quiet stretch - perfect for getting away from the crowds. It takes in great views of the lava rock formations and allows you to get right up close to them all the while taking in views of the lake

lovely easy hike with beautiful views. definitely recommend this one.

busy but worth it. do climb the stairs and walk through the gate and further along the views are lovely

This is a must-see waterfall, especially while traveling in Iceland's famous Golden Circle. This is an easy short walk with spectacular rewards!

One of my favorite waterfalls in Iceland! Powerful and tons of rainbows

Long stair climb to the top but beautiful views of neighboring farms and sheep on the way up. Iconic waterfall!

Gorgeous waterfall and worth your time while in Iceland! There is an option to walk up several steps to the top but the views from the bottom are much better! We scored a bonus with a very scenic rainbow and, at times, a double rainbow!

This is a beautiful area and an nice walk that gets progressively more difficult and has lots of viewing points.
